Additional Information

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Area residents, community members, students and business owners are invited to an open house to learn more about the services at Grand Valley State University's Battle Creek Regional Outreach Center.
The outreach center, located at 8 Michigan Ave. West., officially opened. The community open house is Thursday, January 16, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Refreshments will be available.
Grand Valley staff members at the center will support students and community members with college advising and career exploration, including help with federal aid forms and college applications.
Establishing an outreach center in Battle Creek is an offshoot of a $15.5 million grant awarded to Grand Valley last year by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
Since the grant was awarded, GVSU faculty members have designed and led professional development opportunities for Battle Creek teachers, working in collaboration with BCPS teachers and administrators. GVSU College of Education faculty members have supported BCPS student teachers through seminars courses, and BCPS middle and high school students attended several Grand Valley STEM-related camps last summer.
